: I think it`s also a matter of defining what a classic is! is it a song that sells (have
: stones-singles ever sold very much?), or is it a song that people want to hear live?
: in that case Out Of Control and Saint Of Me is already huge classics. Or is it that the
: songs have to enter fans top 20/40. what is a classic!
: To me SOM & OOC are huge classics, and from voodoo Lounge out of tears and I go Wild
: are on my top 20, and if they had put some fairy dust (as Keith calls it :-) on Honest man,
: that would have been there too.
: I think an interesting question for people who are looking for new classics is: what do you
: expect from a classic?
: Im very content with the Stones Musical progresion, and have no complaints at all. And
: yes, i really like B2B!! :) infact I think it`s brilliant! And im happy that they are trying new
: thing, cos` im afraid the alterbative is no Stones at all, and isn`t a scary thought!
: Just some thoughts!
: best wishes
Out of Control and Saint of Me, one or both, are the first songs since Start Me Up that have a realistic chance to stay in the setlist past one tour. They've both made it thru 2 so far.
